We really need more info from you. Where will you be before Talkeetna? Do you really mean from Talkeetna to Whittier or from the McKinley Princess to Whittier? Big difference. How are you getting to Talkeetna?

Most likely you just buy a bottle of wine when you are in Talkeetna during your stay at the McKinley Princess. If not that, then buy it when you pass through Anchorage or Fairbanks, which all cruisetours do at some point (though I would not count on Talkeetna to Whittier stopping in Anchorage or anywhere for that matter for shopping).

k2iks, I think the principle is "Since we are allowed to bring wine on board, let's do it no matter what it ends up costing us!" :-)

Good point; just found out there's a liqour store directly across street from Denali Princess Lodge. I don't even drink but bringing a large group with me and they all want to have their one bottle allowed to bring on cruise with them so I'm trying to keep them happy. HA!.
